Consider All the Pros and Cons of Homeschooling

The concept of homeschooling is not new; it has been around for a very long time. However, there has been a surge in homeschoolers and the diversity of people adopting the practice in the last two decades.  

One study found that homeschoolers have doubled since 1999, reaching 1.8 million in 2016.  The current year of writing this is 2022, and we know (based on recent events) that that number should be hitting 3 million now.  

If you’re considering homeschooling your kids, you should know that it has many advantages and disadvantages. You shouldn’t decide based on one or two benefits; always consider the pitfalls.  

As a parent, this is one of the biggest attractions of homeschooling your child. You can choose and plan and execute.

Pro: Flexibility 

If you plan to homeschool your children, you should also know that you will have less time for yourself. Homeschooling is a tiring, time-consuming job.

Con: Little to No Personal Time

Home learning allows you to customize teaching methods according to your children’s needs. You can focus on areas where they are struggling and be patient with them.  .

Pro: Personalized Learning 

Keep in mind that home-based education isolates your child from activities with other students they would have had if they were in regular school.

Con: Reduced Social Interaction
